The Sindow Coin or SC is the main group currency.
We DO NOT allows sales of Sindows, items, breeding slots, etc... for real life money or dA points.
You CANNOT 'trade' your Sindow(s), items for RL money or dA points.
Any Sindow related sales for RL money or points will be removed from the group and you will be reminded about the rule. If you cannot abide by this rule after you have been warned, you will be removed of all your Sindows/items, and kicked out.
You CAN trade your Sindow(s)/items for other ARPG group currency, items, or genos, etc...
You CAN sell your Sindow(s)/items etc... for Sindow coins. Why can't I sell my Sindow for what I want?
I wanted to take the RL Money and dA point value off of all my species heads. I want people to treat them more like characters, not breeding machines and the RL money/point value would increase the need to breed and sell offspring.
I also wanted the group to be like it's own inclusive little world, like a video game as well. You enter the game and most of the time you have to do things to earn your own currency. That's what I wanted here. Yes, I know that you can buy things with RL money in video games, but that's not my point.
It makes it truly fair to all, keeps the money target off the species, and doesn't let anyone's credit card do the talking. I understand that it's your choice to use real money or not in ARPG, but I just wanted something different and not to be concerned about customs and RL money. I wanted people to put in the work for their Sindows. Will there ever be cash/points sales of adotable Sindows available from the group?
No. All group prompted adopts will be for Sindow coin sale or Draw/Write-to-Adopt.
Again, I understand this makes it hard for some people to join the group when you need group currency to buy the Sindow, but you're completely new and don't have any. If you want your first Sindow to be a custom, then you'll just have to work to get it, Starters are always available to participate in activities in order to earn SC. (This again relates back to people buying custom shinies to just breed for rare genes.) That's why I have the Creation Lab which allows new members to create their first Sindow for free as well as the Weekly Raffle.
However, this is an ARPG group. If you didn't plan on drawing or writing about the Sindow, just buying to have, then this probably isn't the best group for you.How do I earn SC if I'm new to the group and don't have any Sindows, but want to buy one?
- This is for people who want to get a Sindow that they truly connect with instead of the free one for now to use to get SC and they never use it again. -
- Newbie Starter packs
: They include 2,000 SC!
: Take a group starter and participate in some activities, you'll earn items you can trade in for SC or you may just pick up some SC on your way.
- Weekly Raffles:
They may have SC prizes from time to time AND also Sindows available.
- Other Users:
this doesn't mean beg for SC, this means search through the advertisements for people looking for art, etc... of their Sindows and they're offering to pay in SC! Some may even have giveaways!This seems like a lot more work. Having point/cash sales is so much easier.
The point is to curate activity instead of seeing dollar signs. I know alot of people don't buy with the intent to use their characters as breeding machines or buy just to buy, but again, I just wanted the RL money value off their heads. I wanted something different and I wanted people to put in a little effort.Any questions or concerns, just ask!
